2 / Draft process

Work with the program manager and a few other folks on the design system team to draft a proposal process for a pilot.

3 / Get sign-off

Get sign-off for the new process workflow from the design system director and product owner.

4 / Pilot the process

Pilot the new process workflow with a small subset of the design system team. Introduce, facilitate, and guide the team as necessary.
